A little "Pep" in my Step

Yesterday, I had about 3,346 things on my to-do list.  Some of them were chores (like the mountain of laundry taking over our closet) and some were fun (decorating for fall, and making pumpkin bread!)  Unfortunately, about 2 of those things got done.  What happened, you might ask?

SATC the movie just HAD to come on TV.  And of course, I HAD to watch it.   All of it.  I laughed, and cried, and then cried some more after realizing that I couldn't cross more items off my to-do list.   
(Side note: Is it just me, or does anyone else literally make lists, just to cross things off of it?)

Anyway, between Big leaving Carrie at the church (hope that wasn't a spoiler), Samantha's sushi situation, and the honeymoon vacation, I took in all of the fashion do's and don'ts that SJP and the girls modeled.  One particular dress was the floral peplum.  Need a reminder?

Although, this is to the extreme of the peplum trend, it did catch my eye, and it made me want to do a post on peplum fashion.

A few of my faves:

Mossimo® Women's Refined Peplum Dress - Assorted Colors

And, a few weeks ago, I saw this top at H&M, and I thought....
maybe I'll give "peplum" a try :)

I think I like it!

Tell me - are you a "peplum" fan?
Or is it one of those trends that isn't worth trying?

Love love love that movie! I would watch it from start to finish anytime. And I love that peplum top you got, it looks fantastic! I have a top and a dress that I just love, and I would totally go back for more. SJP looks awesome in that dress!

Although I own the DVD, every single time that movie is on I just must watch it! I also cry every single time at a few of the same spots. ;)

Love that peplum top on you. I have tried a few and haven't loved them as much on me, but I almost always love the look on others.
